Add the turmeric powder, chilly powder, and  garam masala and sauté until the raw smell disappears. Add the chopped tomatoes and saute until they are mushy. Add the left over gravy at this stage.

Break in the eggs into the pan and do a quick mix with the masala. Throw in the chopped parotta when the eggs are still wet. Mix well, gently though to coat the parottas with the eggs and let it cook. Saute until the eggs are cooked and the gravy is completely absorbed.
